You know old buddy, I think you are right there...maybe we'd have to put CLIFF and Smi2les on opposite sides of the room for a bit, but I really think you are right...that's what's hard to convey to folks that have felt abused--and I can at times appreciate that--since we feel like we know the "real" person behind a profane post. It's not a matter of defending them--I would be upset by some posts myself if I didn't know the poster well via off site communication or just three yrs of history with them...by the same token, it's probably why we take a while to "trust" new folks that rub an old friend the wrong way--we just don't know them well enough to judge them as friend or foe (and enough trolls upset us for us to imagine the foes are "real" rather than just stirring things up for a "good time" from their perspective).

For sure , we would have been good buddies if we had met at shows , deadheads being the only americans who were always free to speak with , convince me to go with them hundred of miles away at the drop of a hat ,hang out all nights in their parkinlots even tho i had never met them the day before ! By the way the only time i didn't like their scene was a strange day in Oakland where for once the crowd was mainly only men . The vibes were heavy , unpleasant and not being the kind of queen at ease with mostly only boys around , well , that was the only concert i left half an hour after music started when i realized 3 out of 4only were men and even GD played yukky .For me good news vibrations must include equal numbers of boys and gals to feel comfortable in the crowd .That said i am curious to kow how things goes on safety matters nowadays . Are the women cruising around in the parkinlots late at night no problems ?Methinks , in the 80's deadheads got keenly conscious of the importance to keep their scene safe for all and would not hesitate to run off the worse scumbags dangerous to all . And I am sure to this very day that is how it was during all these years i went to shows and so why i cherired deadheads so much . As for the troll bit , i don't really know the meaning of that word in relation to thi forum ad never quite understood why anyone could thing i was one !I am only a deadhead from overseas who got overjoyed discovering i could talk with deadheads on computers ! Frankly tho if thi archive forum reserved mostly to technical infos on GD , i had not known that , wanting only to goof around with what i thought were friends , . Never had as many hassles with heads as on this forum !

I was a GD fan, with a job, and while at home always with the opposite sex. I'd hitched to alot of shows away from home, but the ole lady hated to camp, so she banged the neighbor.

my last visit was last year after a funeral for a friend. Slept a few nights there, did a few Henchmen pizza runs, left a Persuasions do GD cd with a She Devil, and Drink with Uncle John every time I stop in..... Find me there or Banta, but currently I am careless, homeless, careless, otherwise an 801 Violator....so I am not really drinking at this time. Hope to run across some folks I met from Hag Records if I hook this gig with the wild horses.

Good Luck, Rasta
